Golden Ages: Everything Will Be Alright [Video]


Everything that I have seen and heard from Philadelphia group Golden Ages has been very cutting edge. This band has influences, yes, but they pick apart the good pieces and expand on them for a sound both entrancing and captivating. There is something entirely dream-like about everything this band touches, yet it is vivid and clear. This trait is blatant in their video for “Everything Will Be Alright”; traffic signs and light posts split apart and drift away.

There are peaceful moments, risque moments, and moments that are downright terrifying. “Everything Will Be Alright” demonstrates that the mind can be a very elusive, deceitful, nightmarish thing.

Take, for example, the closing track of their new EP Sitting Softly In The Sea, “Everything Will Be Alright”. There’s more electro-pop here than psychedelic pop. The same can be said about opener “Here We Are At Sea”, but the focus is instead on experimentation. And “The Whale” mixes all three. Read More »Golden Ages [Feature Band]
